British Columbia¿s Skeena River is one of the great salmon rivers of the North Pacific. The river and its fish have supported indigenous peoples for thousands of years. More recently, the Skeena has earned world renown for its recreational fishery and magnificent wilderness setting. Yet, over the last century, fish populations have declined from overfishing, habitat alteration and, to an unknown degree, climate change. Development of mining as well as oil and gas resources may also pose threats to fish populations.This book presents the first thorough review of the salmon stocks and freshwater species of the Skeena River. Initial chapters summarize the river¿s environment, fish, and fisheries. The book then examines the physical geography, development history, indigenous use, and major salmon stocks of each of the watershed¿s sub-basins. This volume makes available for the first time¿to researchers, field biologists, fishermen and natural history enthusiasts¿both the published, and largely unpublished, literature on this productive salmon ecosystem.

Famous British Columbia Fly Fishing Waters

For many anglers, exploring the history of fly-fishing is as important a part of their life as actually getting out on the water. This book is for those fly-fishers with a love for the history of fly-fishing in North America.

Looking over the past 150 years, Art Lingren explores the origins of fly-fishing in British Columbia. He covers both the special waters where fly-fishing developed and the legendary fishermen who laid the foundation for the fly-fishers to come. Many of these fishermen were the first in all of North America to experiment with the flies and techniques of Great Britain. Lingren discusses such fabled waters as the Campbell River, the Dean, Bella Coola, and Skagit rivers, and of course the famous Thompson. A description of each water is given, including: its history, effective techniques and flies, species information, excerpts from historical references, local anglers and their experiences, and more. For many anglers, exploring the history of fly-fishing is as important a part of their life as actually getting out on the water. This book is for those fly-fishers with a love for the history of fly-fishing in North America.

With the help of his friends Mike Crockett and Jack Hemingway, Grant McClintock set out on a year's angling sojourn through the West visiting some of the world's most renowned trout and steelhead rivers. They came away from their travels with the photographs, tales, and memories that became the book Flywater, one of the iconic books of fly fishing's literary canon. McClintock takes the reader back to these fabulous places--and moments--with extraordinary, as-yet-unpublished photography. Flywater: Fly-Fishing Rivers of the West is a gallery of moments, places, people, and ideas. McClintock's rich photos create a compelling journey that the reader, whether fisherman or non-fisherman, will thoroughly enjoy. For the serious fly fisherman, it is an album of shared experiences. For the uninitiated, it is an artfully crafted guidebook to an exotic new world that really does exist on the streams and rivers of the American West.

Fish Versus Power

Fish versus Power is an environmental history of the Fraser River (British Columbia) and the attempts to dam it for power and to defend it for salmon. Amid contemporary debates over large dam development and declines in fisheries, this book offers a case study of a river basin where development decisions did not ultimately dam the river, but rather conserved its salmon. Although the case is local, its implications are global as Evenden explores the transnational forces that shaped the river, the changing knowledge and practices of science, and the role of environmental change in shaping environmental debate.

Columbia River Northern Pike

Northern pike (Esox lucius) is a widely distributed freshwater fish in the northern hemisphere, holding both recreational and commercial value in many countries including Canada. Pike are apex predators and are well regarded as a sport fish due to their size and voraciousness, leading to a long history of introductions outside their native range in North America. Invasive pike populations can impose significant top-down pressure on native fish community structure through predation and competition for resources, and have been linked with significant reductions of a variety of native species. Pike have recently invaded the Columbia River in British Columbia downstream of the Hugh L. Keenleyside Dam, threatening important sport fisheries, local ecosystems, and Species at Risk recovery work currently being conducted in the Columbia and its tributaries. In response to the invasion, the province implemented a pike suppression program, yet several questions remain regarding the ecology and behaviour of the recently colonized population. This research aimed to answer these questions and aid in the development of a long term management strategy for the Columbia River. Four years of data collected through the suppression program were analyzed to investigate the potential risk the invasion poses to native fish communities in B.C., the status of pike in the B.C. Columbia River, and the efficacy and impacts of current efforts. A total of 352 northern pike were captured through the suppression program by gill-netting (n=323) and angler incentives (n=29), ranging in length from 260 mm to 1050 mm. Cleithra age estimates indicate pike from within this population are achieving sizes in excess of 1 m in five to six years, and are in better than average body condition (relative weight Wr used) when compared to other North American populations. A total of 584, 659, 407, and 676 gill-net hours were set in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 respectively, and an overall reduction in pike catch per unit effort (CPUE) was observed from the initial year (0.19 pike/hr) to the final year (0.05 pike/hr). This suggests gill-netting has been effective at reducing the number of adult pike in B.C. and should be conducted annually. The capture of several juvenile pike (n = 14) near Castlegar in 2017 indicates spawning is occurring in B.C. and future years of suppression should include controlling the juvenile cohort. Salmonids, particularly whitefish spp., appear to be at the greatest risk from pike predation making up approximately 50% of pike diet overall. Acoustic tracking of pike indicated the majority of individuals from within this population remain relatively sedentary, yet one individual migrated in excess of 100 km between B.C. and Washington. Microchemical analysis of pike otoliths revealed significant differences in ratios of Sr and Ba to Ca between pike caught in the Columbia and Pend d'Oreille Rivers, and that a small portion of the current Columbia population in B.C. appears to have originated in the Pend d'Oreille River. Fluctuations in otolith elemental Mg concentrations also appear to provide information that can be used to estimate the age of northern pike and potentially other esocid species. Lastly, the use of environmental DNA (eDNA) sampling as a tool to monitor the presence and spread of northern pike in B.C. was explored with minimal success; the protocol used and results obtained are discussed.
